@Yaseen To be fair he did say that he disagrees with Tahir ul Qadri on many issues and this praise should not be seen as support for him. Furthermore, he praised Tahir ul Qadri's choice of words and how how careful he was not to use any words that might entail disrespect. If you consider why Jalali Sahib has been criticised, it is because of his choice of words and not his understanding of the issue. I think we need to be objective and judge the truth by the truth, rather than get partisan. Dr Jalali Sahib should have just apologised and took his words back, as that would have cooled the issue down. Instead trying to justifying his statement has just given the detractors (the tafdhlis) an open goal to hoodwink the public into thinking nasabism and kharjism is rife in the ranks of sunnis. In this cauldron, even little mistakes are magnified and Jalali Sahib should have shown more restraint because those words were in bad taste. Above that when those statements were picked up on, he should have apologised and took his statement back.
